Unformatted text preview: 33. The volume Vcav of the cavities is the difference between the volume Vcast of the casting as a whole and the volume Viron contained: Vcav = Vcast − Viron . The volume of the iron is given by Viron = W/gρiron , where W is the weight of the casting and ρiron is the density of iron. The effective weight in water (of density ρw ) is Weff = W − gρw Vcast . Thus, Vcast = (W − Weff )/gρw and Vcav = = = W − Weff W − gρw gρiron 6000 N − 4000 N 6000 N − (9.8 m/s2 )(1000 kg/m3 ) (9.8 m/s2 )(7.87 × 103 kg/m3 ) 0.126 m3 . ...
